Smile analysis and design

Smile analysis and design is the primary service the Dr. Russell Nishimura office for Esthetic Dentistry offers.

Smile analysis and design is a highly technical process requiring excellent skill and experience to achieve a natural result.

Specialized diagnosis skill

It is not taught at all or only touched upon in dental school - dentists must learn the techniques in post-graduate courses and then perfect the art through extensive experience. For this reason, many dentists can not perform like our office.

It takes artistic ability and extensive knowledge to perform an impeccable Smile analysis and design. Techniques require precise measurements based upon mouth shape, gum lines, lips, and natural shape of the teeth. That’s why we devote time to precisely planning a Smile analysis and design before we begin the actual procedure.

Initial esthetic consultation

During a patient's initial esthetic consultation, our team can download a digital photograph into an imaging program and show the guest what their new smile can look like. Extensive Smile analysis and design treatments may require as few as two appointments that are typically several hours each depending on the complexity.

“With each patient, we can create a unique design to fit their age and sex, facial features and characteristics,” says Dr. Russell Nishimura.

“Most people don’t realize how much we can reshape their teeth, smile and entire appearance. You know when a Smile analysis and design is done well, because the new restorations truly are undetectable and all you see is a gorgeous new smile.”

Key Benefits of Smile analysis and design

  • Dramatic impact, in achieving new smile in short term.
  • Truly undetectable, brings a natural result.
  • With precise measurement, new smile can be simulated during initial esthetic consultation.
